I didn't realize Seattle once had a franchise. Grats to them for getting one now!! I wonder how Vancouver feels about this as I'm sure much of their fan base is NW Washington, Specifically the Seattle Metro area.

The Seattle franchise will create a very nice, intense geographical rivalry with Vancouver. I think that was one of the league's intention with expanding there.

Vancouver approved Seattle expansion. It benefits them financially.

Ron Francis had been named the first general manager of the Seattle team. https://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl...ncis-1.5216716

Pefect choice. Francis knows what he's doing. This will probably put the team on the right foot starting out. I'm interested to see how the expansion draft rules will fare... same or different than Vegas?
